Where Has All The Hair Gone?

I am a fairly hairy sumbitch.Ive noticed that nearly all my friends and other people (guys) in general have no fuckin hair on their chest? they are as smooth as my wife.

I know my mates dont shave-wax. It pisses me off because id like to get rid of my chest and belly hair but i get the worst rash and itchyness u could imagine and its grows back very fast.

So why is it most males have no hair on their chest even forarms? Low testosterone? genetics? high testosterone?

Peace

Those of us who are in that situation are just lucky I guess.

i’m a hairy bastard, but i keep it nice and trim with hair clippers.

as for my chest, i shave with something called “coochie cream”. i know it sounds gay, but it works great for preventing razor rash… it is designed for thick hair areas…

anyway, clippers are the way to for me everywhere else…

I’m getting to be like this,and I already hate it.I shave chest/belly hair once every 4-5 months.My legs and arms are hairy enough so i dont cut that since i dont want it to grow back thicker

If I’m not mistaken, the reason men have chest hair is because of testosterone. I don’t know why grown men want to shave it off. For girls? I don’t want to have the skin of a 12 yr old boy. And I don’t want a girl who wants her man to shave his chest or nuts or whatever anyway. But to each his own.

Laser hair removal, man. No itchiness, a little redness that fades. How well it works depends on your hair color and skin tone. I have dark hair and light skin, so it works well. What is your coloring like?

Ask your avatar.

Why shave when you can use clippers? No razor burn that way, and avoid looking like Dr. Evil’s shorn scrotum. That is, still looking a little manly.

Maybe it’s the “all or none” mentality?

i’m sure he is no stranger to the wax, like the majority of smooth big guys.

Amen Brother, My level of Hairiness falls somewhere between Sean Connery and Austin Powers.

I come from a long line of Hairy Scots-Irish.

How hairy you are isn’t just based on testosterone. It is based on genetics. I have very little body hair. It isn’t because I don’t have enough testosterone. No one in my family is that hairy and, from what I’ve seen, many black men aren’t. You would have to be standing right next to me to see any chest hair even though my facial hair grows extremely fast. I have almost no leg hair at all and that is just the way things are. Everyone wasn’t born a gorilla.

Who really cares just wear the hair with pride.

Most laser places will negotiate price-wise or cut you a package deal…just a thought.

My skin doesn’t tolerate waxing/shaving well AT ALL, so the laser was really my only option. It’s sort of addictive, I have to say. If you do it make sure to get the cooling gel/topical anaesthetic to put on beforehand; it makes the whole thing significantly less painful and they can use more energy, which will give you better results.

I beleive that for most people it is simply genetics. I am almost hairless on my upper body, but my legs have a ton of hair. I look like pan with my shirt off and shorts.

Genetics. I’m Asian, I have no chest hair to speak of, but I have some around my abs, a little line running down. I have a bit on my upper legs and a lot more on my lower legs.

One of my other Asian friends was apparently smooth enough that people ask him if he shaved his legs.

And yeah, as Prof verified, nothing to do with Test levels.

I fucking love a hairy man. I like it neat in the fun zone 'cause I hate to be interrupted by a crisp one when I am busy worshipping. Other than that I love it, it’s just so…manly. I think I would cry if my guy shaved his chest.

I agree…however, from the waist up I have very little body hair but from the waist down, it’s the complete opposite…never understood that one.

I’m a hairy bastard too. I just use a beard trimmer with adjustable level on my chest when it starts to poke out the top of my shirt.

Otherwise it looks like im smuggling muppets in my shirt.
